Loosing a friend as a teenager is hard.

I never really lost anyone close to me. Besides my grandfather who died before I was born, everyone is still alive.

I never felt the pain of knowing that he wouldn't be at school the next day. Waking up, knowing that he is still gone is hard. September 29, 2008, was the worst Monday morning I have ever encountered.

It's been a month without him, but in class sometimes I stop and wonder what he would be saying in this seminar, or what he would be doing his project on. It seems as though everyone has moved on.

I turn 16 in 23 days, and to think that you were only 16 when God took you, it frightens me. Sometimes when I stop to think about it I get teary eyed, but the truth is I still haven't fully broken down and cried yet. Keeping busy seems to be the best thing.

Rest in peace, I'll never forget you.

Takes Time

Healing takes time. You will feel emotions that you did not know exist. Have peace in knowing that your emotions are a part of the grieving process.

I lost my close friend, Melinda Mulder, while in college. At the time, I tried to be strong and focus on graduating from school and suppressed my grief until I could not any longer. I started to pull away from my friends and from my first true love. I was having recurring nightmares that I could not control. It was an incredibly difficult time but I grew through it.

May peace and memories surround you.

Yes it is hard

It is the hardest thing to go through. No one knows what to say and then, they just forget. It is sad, I feel your pain.
